I could use some help/guidance with wordpress, as I'm still quite a newbie with it, but not newbie in web design.
issue is: I'm about to do some heavy updating to existing WP site of mine, meaning changing the template completely, some structural changes etc.
I'm planning on keeping the current posts n pages about as they are though, but not sure which is the best way to "update" the whole site? I can run the theme locally of course, but that's about it. The thing is, I get some visitors already and they are growing day by day so don't want to "rape" the site now...
how hard it would be for WP-newbie like me to get the whole site on local PC (with DB etc.) and then do all the needed updates for layout/content etc. and then upload it to live server and and still have it fully functional with DB etc.?
I'm quite useless what comes to backend stuff so I'm afraid that I might mess the whole site up, also due moving houses, I'm hanging on with ****ty 3G connection at least till next week.
guidance more than welcome
